with the global terrorist threat. on taking office, president obama declined to undertake an official study of what happened. senator leahy introduced legislation to establish a truth commission, and congress failed to act on it. so in many respects, this task force, this report is the comprehensive examination of the treatment of suspected terrorists that official washington has been reluctant to conduct. task force members believe that having an understanding of what occurred during this period of serious threat and willingness to acknowledge any shortcomings strengthen the nation and equip us to better cope with any future crises. it knowing what happened, our reputation, as an exemplary practitioner of the rule of law, will clearly be damaged. the task force is made up of as jenny said, a broad cross-section of folks have been in government, who understand government, who understand military, who understand the role of intelligence. the bios are in your folder but i would like to take just a minute to introduce them at this time. dr. gerald thomson, the former, our professor emeritus at
is former secret service agent for barack obama, dan is with us. welcome back. one of the things i was thinking of today, and i know this is your area of expertise and having worked at the secret service and having protected barack obama, do you think as a matter of course being the boston marathon that they had bomb sniffing dogs prayer to the marathon? >> right, but we are assuming the bombs were placed there today when the security cordon was set up. but what if you got in before it was set up and pro placed an explosive. pennsylvania avenue doesn't have any devices but when he walked down we had the entire cordon set up. so don't assume they were put there today. >> what would be the process, then, as it relates to law enforcement when they have a big crowd like this? i assume you have to have bomb sniffing dogs going in and out at some point, right? >> right. but what we would do in the secret service and i don't know how practical for an event like the marathon, you have to clean the area out first. sweep it with the dogs, the explosives personnel from the military would look

's what we all want to moment dan was a u.s. secret service agent who walked ahead of president obama during "the nine" inaugural parade and he knows what it takes to secure this type of situation. dan, that's what people want to know. how? how could this happen? >> good question. i think everybody is assuming, though, that these bombs were planted yesterday when they, in fact exploded and the event happened. that may not be the case. i don't know that for a fact, but what concerned the secret service and me specifically when i was there and we would organize the parade route for the president was not a device trying to come in that day. we knew we would be able to intercept it, but a device that was preplanted. and that, unfortunately, may be an avenue they may have to pursue investigatively. >> brian: from what you can tell, from what we know, this saudi national is a person of interest in the hospital right now who we've gone through his apartment. how unusual is it for the bomber, who is not a homicide bomber, to be a victim? evidently he had burns on him and smelled like gun powd
